Funkwerk AG wins landmark contract for Alister interlocking system

Breakthrough for use in public transport / Contract valued in mid-single digit millions / Market for electronic interlocking systems has great growth potential

(PresseBox) ( Kölleda, )
After substantial restructuring measures over the last few months, Funkwerk AG has now taken a decisive step in setting the future course of its operations. In a landmark contract for one of the company's primary core products, the efficient Alister interlocking system, Deutsche Bahn AG has commissioned Funkwerk under the existing module agreement to modernise the signalling equipment on the Bremen - Bremerhaven section. The interlocking systems are scheduled for operation in October 2013. The order volume ranges in the mid-single digit millions.

The development of the Alister platform for electronic interlocking systems has repositioned Funkwerk AG in the signalling equipment market. Contrary to previous solutions, the system produced by the company's Traffic & Control Communication (TCC) segment is based on standard industrial components, can be individually adapted and has a discretionary safety standard. This trendsetting concept minimises the costs for the user. Alister has already proven successful for many years in the cargo sector. The latest rail contract has given Funkwerk a breakthrough in the important public transport sector (ESTW-R) and opened up a market that holds significant growth potential - the European railway infrastructure is largely outdated and in dire need of modernisation. In Germany alone, some 31,000 units have now reached their age limit.
